“My dream has always been to help children. I want to do that through a school that will give hope to the poorest children in Haiti”-Edeline  See more

THE STORY:

On January 12, 2010, Edeline Felizor, a Haitian nurse and teacher, was left crushed under rubble after the most devastating earthquake in history struck. Though she suffered life-threatening injuries, Edeline was one of the survivors. Her life saved and recovering from multiple surgeries, Edeline was transported to San Diego to receive the care she needed if she were to ever walk again. She now lives in San Diego with the founder of Youth Without Borders and is rehabilitating at La Jolla Shores Physical Therapy. Expected to make a full recovery, Edeline plans to devote the rest of her life in the same manner as she did before her accident – serving people.

Since most of the children will come from families unable to pay minimal, economic self- sustainment will figure as the overarching challenge. To that end, an arts/crafts program will be implemented whereby articles created by the students will be used to raise funds in the United States to expand the school’s facilities and offset operational costs. Thus, the concept is not to provide another give-away but an opportunity for children to learn how to build productive lives through a visionary, enriching program that they will help support themselves. This concept has already had success with a Youth Without Borders program in the summer of 2010 when over $10,000 was raised from donations in turn for bracelets made by poor children in Haiti.
